Now my question...do I need to do something special to disinfect my danish wool breast pads? I can't find any info on this anywhere. :
Additionally, I just have to vent while I'm here...is my doc a %$#& idiot?!? He told me to put corn starch on Noah's dipe rash, which he said was yeast! He told me that was milk coating on his tongue. He told me breastmilk is "just milk" and has no protective qualities. And don't even let me start about vaxes and mercury. Grrrrr.....
Needless to say, I'll be finding another MD.
Sorry for rant...what about the pads?
good luck -- thrush sucks!
I'd definitely switch to disposables until you get better. Or none, even better.
I am a big fan of Bactroban ointment for thrush, if you can find a sane doctor to prescribe it, yours sounds like a moron. Like mine, LOL!

Here's a great page of what to do for yeast - and remember you need to treat both you and ds!
